I'm considering subscribing but thought I would ping a community of people I find rather trustworthy of taking advice from.

Seems like clickbait for nerds.

I also find it suspicious that the top "Top Story" happens to be an advertisement full of tracked hyperlinks. Oh yeah, there is a small warning at the bottom of the article: "To create this content, a non-editorial team worked with an affiliate partner. We may collect a small commission on items purchased through this page." From my perspective, this fails at basic journalist ethics: advertising should be clearly disclosed as such, before clicking on the link.
